The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 11/03/09

Air date: 
Tue, 11/03/2009 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Obama's grade thus far? A mixed bag.

Nearly a year after his election (but, in fairness, not yet a year into his first term), Barack Obama is an enigma. Thankfully, he has abandoned the rapacious aggression and naked nationalism of the Bush years, but on critical issues like warrantless surveillance and detention of combatants he is barely distinguishable from his criminal predecessors. His clear-eyed acceptance of global warming is refreshing -- not to mention timely -- but he appears on the verge of capitulating to the profiteers who run the American health care system.

Barack Obama remains a study in contradictions. Abe and Joe examine his record thus far, and speculate on what's to come.

9/11 -Are we doomed to repeat it?

Hi guys,

I listened to the caller who was recommending you do research into 9/11 and your up front denial that it could be any kind of "conspiracy".  I just had to reply!

I suggest you watch "Spare Change: The Final Cut" at http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3719259008768610598# . This film is not advocating any kind of conspiracy, just looking at the confounding evidence that does not match up to the 9/11 report or to the media spin.

This version (the final cut) has edited out any material that is even remotely questionable, and focuses strictly on incontrovertible evidence. It is all public information gained off of CNN, BBC, C-Span, etc. and Freedom of Information Act sources, but it just doesn't add up.

As far as Al Qaeda saying that they did it... Osama Bin Laden is not on the FBI top most wanted, or is even being sought, due to the fact that there is no evidence that he was part of it. This is public information. I am sure that Al Qaeda likes that it happened, since it furthers their goal of drawing the West into a protracted war with Islam, but that is not evidence that they did it.

I think most people don't want to believe that 9/11 could have been a false flag operation, because they don't want to believe that their government has became totalitarian. People want to believe their government is on their side.

This is not logical.

If you look at the huge pile of confounding facts, it is clear that something is being covered up. We don't know what happened. Even some of the 9/11 commission members have come out to say that.

What we really need is a new investigation. Unfortunately we will never get it since so many people just wish to stick their heads in the sand. Because of this, we will probably never really know what happened, nor be able to stop it next time.

I love the premise of your show and appreciate you all.

Thanks,

Stephanie
